Showers

Access to Hygene

Something many people take for granted is access to running water. When Vigilant Hope first began talking to people who faced homelessness we learned that a lack of access to showers was a huge problem in Wilmington, NC. So we launched a shower trailer to provide hygiene supplies and hot showers throughout the week.

Meals

Breaking Bread Together

We threw away the idea of a soup kitchen and decided instead to focus on family meals. We gather around the table as a community to eat and share our lives together.


These happen: 

Saturdays from 8am-10am

Lake Forest Baptist Church (1626 Lake Branch Drive)

Thursdays a potluck from 6pm-7:30pm  

20 S. 16th St.  Bring a dish or a willingness to set up/clean up.

Bible Study and Prayer


Thursdays  at 5pm we offer a Bible study for anyone who wants to grow in the Word of God together. 

20 S 16th St
